    Where can I donate my bed?

    I have a full size mattress, box spring & metal bed frame that I am getting rid of and would prefer to donate it rather than throw it away.
    Any suggestions for agencies or resources that might accept donation of a bed?

    Most places won't take the mattress and box spring b/c of concerns about bedbugs.  Call Salvation Army to see if they will pick up your bed frame.

    Try freecycling it. There may be someone out there who is in need of a bed. Or craigslist has an area for listing free things.good luck.

    Most places that you buy your new mattress & box spring will dispose of the old one. I would never want someone else's old matress & box spring. It's nothing personal but most old matresses & box springs will have bed bugs in them. Even those people who are very clean with regards to their housekeeping skills. Also, many more people are allergic to bed bugs these days. Please consider having your old mattress and box spring disposed of properly rather than donating it.

    You could post it on craigslist. There are many interesting and diverse offerings on that site.

    Oops, I forgot to say, maybe you should make a cash donation to say the Salvation Army or a Homeless Shelter. This way, they could purchase a new mattress & box spring for someone in need of one.

    Due to health regulatuons, mattresses are not supposed to be re-used however if it is in good condition, try calling the Homeless Veterans shelter, Rosie's Place, etc.

    Sounds like your biggest challenge is finding a charity with a vehicle big enough to transport a bed.  Try:

    http://www.tbpm.org/giving/furniture_donations.html

    http://www.solutionsatwork.org/ (used to operate a furniture bank; not sure how they're doing these days)

    Why does everyone assume the bed has bed bugs?

    Cause otherwise they'd be called "closet bugs".

    Sheesh. Some people.
